If you're a Midland Painted Turtle you crawl onto a log, stretch your neck, tail, and hind legs and let the sun warm your body in the 45 degree air.
If your a Chipping Sparrow you pause for a few moments, while eating wild berries, and let the sun warm your feathers before flitting away from a hiker taking your photograph.
If you're me, you stop and marvel at the color of a Sugar Maple's glowing leaves in the afternoon sun and appreciate the sun's ability to make all creatures pause and enjoy the moment.
